Sahara Prison


Sahara Prison is a fascinating documentary with exclusive footage and a personal testimony of the brutal life in the inner circle of Al Queda. A documentary that reveals the hundred billion dollar industry behind the people-smuggling and kidnapping business. It’s also a very personal account of Johan Gustafsson and the nightmare of being held for ransom in the Sahara för six years, until he was freed in June 2017. It tells the full story including dramatic attempts to escape into the vast desert. And how every step became a step closer to the love left behind at home.
